2024: The Year Linux Dethrones Windows on the Desktop – Are You Ready?
  • GNOME is bad. Abandon GNOME. If you like the UI of Windows, try KDE Plasma 6. It's much more feature rich than GNOME and very customizable too. And touchpad speed can be adjusted in the System Settings application.

  • Windows 10 is EOL in October 2025
  • I agree. But using Windows XP these days is a huge security risk. W10 not getting security updates at least for the next 2 years is probably something that can be overlooked, but it will at some point be vulnerable like XP. I'm sure there are some websites on the web that try to automatically exploit some major exploits that have been lrft unfixed in Windows XP. I'd advise them to switch to Linux Mint or something instead of using that old vulnerable system.

  • Yeah KDE Plasma looks and functions alot like W10.

  • Tips on distro for gaming
  • Any distro will do honestly. If you are a beginner and just want the distro to work out of the box, something like Pop!_OS might be for you.

  • The future is here
  • guys it works!1!1!1!

  • Every time I boot up my computer
  • I reboot every day thanks to arch.

  • Reddit brings back its old award system — ‘we messed up’
  • Would be nice if authors could see the amount of stars their content has.

  • ‘Let yourself be monitored’: EU governments to agree on Chat Control with user “consent” [updated]
  • The funny thing is that most of those pedophiles who share CP or any of that child sexual shit on the internet don't use your casual normie's go-to messaging apps like WhatsApp or Telegram. If they find out that the EU can now request decryption keys to decrypt their stuff, then they'll switch to something which can't be circumvented by law and probably start encrypting the messages manually instead. The smarter ones probably already started out like that without trusting any provider in the first place. The only ones that'll get caught in this chat control bullshit are the retarded ones. Didn't think a region that was all pro-privacy with their GDPR and their DMA and stuff would actually agree to this.

    Ideas for a federated anime tracker

    Hello Lemmings.

    I will be attempting to make a federated anime tracker this summer, but I am not quite sure what features people would want and how I would get the details for animes, mangas, etc.

    For the latter: What I thought was to either scrape other anime websites continuosly in the background, but this most likely is against the ToS of every anime tracking website, such as AniList or MAL. (I actually asked anidb.net for special access to their DB because apparently you can request access to it, but I've been left on read by the two staff members) My second idea was to make it an anime tracker website where animes are only user-submitted. And the user submissions would be approved by assigned moderators. However, I think this would be quite inconvenient. I'd like to get your opinions and/or ideas for this.

    For the former: So if you have any requests or suggestions, please drop it down in the comments section.

    Thanks in advance.

    Suggest a Laptop for me.

    Hello Lemmings,

    My 5 year old gaming laptop finally needs to be replaced. I need a new laptop for programming and light gaming. I no longer game on a laptop but a desktop. Though being able to play even outside would be nice so the laptop should be able to play at least Team Fortress 2. I'll be installing a Linux distro on it. My budget is around 800-1000€. The screen should be 14 or 15 inches. The battery should last at least 6 hours while not doing anything heavy as video editing or gaming.

    [REQUEST] Data for testing the accuracy of a new recommendation algorithm requested

    Hello Lemmings,

    I've been working on a new anime recommendation algorithm the past 4 months and now I pretty much have the algorithm done.

    To test the accuracy of the algorithm, I am requesting any MyAnimeList user with 50+ completed animes to post their MyAnimeList username along with their overall top 3 genres in descending order. This will then be compared to what the algorithm guessed.

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Thanks a lot, guys. I finally released the project! You can find it here: https://github.com/Asudox/anote

    Should I use Rust and Go together or just Go?

    So I want to make a new project. It will have a website and an algorithm which will handle the requests. The thing is, web development in Rust feels harder than say in Go or Python. So I thought maybe I could somehow make bindings in Rust for Go since the faster the algorithm is, the better. However, that seems to complicate stuff as well. So do you think I should just rewrite the current algorithm in Go? Is it fast enough for it to not be a noticeable difference?

    Edit: Thanks for the suggestions and advice! I decided to go with Rust for the website with Axum and the algorithm as well.

    How often do y'all visit 4chan?

    I visit 4chan several times a day, though I use Lemmy more.

    Edit: I now only visit it a few times a month.
